Tamar Braxton's revelations: New love, and a dark secret

ABC/Adam TaylorTamar Braxton says she has found love again, while also revealing a dark secret about her past. 

After ending her nine-year marriage and filing for divorce from ex Vince Herbert almost a year ago, Braxton has revealed to Wendy Williams that she’s in a new relationship and “very much” in love.

“I’ll describe him: he’s African, he’s in wealth finance, he’s got dreads and he’s got a really nice body,” Williams said on her show, before Braxton excitedly interjected: “He’s fine! Hallelujah!”

Although Braxton has been somewhat quiet about her new beau on social media, she decided to dish all the details during Thursday’s Wendy Williams Show.

“I met him at a friend’s birthday party, thank you God, he’s so fine! I can’t take it sometimes. It’s like a whole snack — a Lunchable!” the singer said, also sharing her boyfriend is a Harvard Business School-grad. “He lives in L.A., he’s originally from Nigeria, but he lived here for a while.”

Although they’ve only been dating for “about three months,” Braxton revealed, “it feels like forever” and added that she’s “very much” in love and possibly ready for marriage if she’s “asked.”

On the subject of children, Braxton, who shares her five-year-old son Logan Vincent with ex Herbert, admits she’s also down for more children.

“I would love to have some wonderful, beautiful African children for the Lord. Yes!” Braxton says.

But Tamar also made a shocking personal revelation to Wendy on Thursday’s show.

“A lot of things happened in my childhood that I was too afraid to talk about or too ashamed to talk about,” she said. “I’ve been molested by both sides of my family and it’s nothing that I ever talked about.”

Braxton did not provide any further details about who molested her, or when it happened.
